So I had agreed to give a friend a call to walk him through some details of chopping samples on the MPC 5000. Unfortunately, I had been so busy that I never got around to calling him, at least not when we were both in front of our MPC 5000’s. At any rate, this seemed like a much better option. In turn, I figured it would benefit more beat makers as well.

In this tutorial we’ll explore the following (some things briefly and some more in depth)

  • navigation
  • loading samples
  • counting bars
  • chopping samples
  • program edit

Feel free to drop me a line in the comments below if you have other things you want me to cover in the future.
